Mary Kyle placed another ad in the 1902 Richmond Planet which mentions the four brothers, along with two uncles Ruben and Henry Reynolds, but not the sister or father. She also placed an ad looking for her four brothers in the 1909 National Tribune published in Washington DC. Both ads can be found here: http://informationwanted.org/items/edit/2069

Do You Know Them?

Argenta, Ark., Jan. 21, '99.

I desire to know the whereabouts of
my relatives.
I was sold from Virginia at the age
of 14 years. My name was Mary Burns
and my sister's name was Georgianna
Burns. My father's name was Wesley
Burns. My mother, Malinda, died
when I was very small. I had four
brothers, Isaac, John, Daniel and Rob-
ert Henry. My home was in Culpeper
County. I married Henry Kyle.

I belonged to Presley Rixey and was
brought to Richmond trader's yard.

Any information will be thankfully
received by
(Mrs.) MARY KYLE,
Argenta, Pulaski Co, Ark.
